Torch Song

Biography

Torch Song was a British synthpop and dance band of the early 1980s consisting of William Orbit, Laurie Mayer and Grant Gilbert. In 1985, Grant left to pursue other projects and long-time friend Rico Conning officially joined the group. After the release of 'Exhibit A' in 1987, Torch Song as a group was put on the back-burner while William concentrated on solo work and remixes. He continued to write with both Laurie and Rico and in 1995 they released 'Toward the Unknown Region.' Read more on Last.fm.

Derek Hoke plays unapologetically classic country from the pre-digital, hell, pre-cassette era. Think of it as a sort of pensive hillbilly.
